Review - Nick Knight OBE

Nick Knight (1958)

Fig. 1. Dolls (2000)

Exercise 2.11 - Split Contrast

Brief: Split contrast is another darkroom technique that’s much easier to achieve in the digital domain. Use it to add drama to your pictures or to correct problems in exposure, for example an over-exposed sky over a correctly exposed landscape. 448 more words


Exercise 2.8 - Fill Flash

Brief: Flash isn’t just useful to illuminate a dark scene, but to bring out a foreground subject with a flash that is balanced with ambient light – be that sunlight or artificial light. 1,116 more words


Exercise 2.10 - Dodging and Burning
